Exploring The Restorative Grief Model

Mandy Capehart is a trauma-informed certified grief educator and coach through Transformation Academy and the David Kessler Grief Educator Certification program. The Restorative Grief model is a proprietary approach incorporating concepts from a variety of therapeutic models of support. Each client is uniquely supported to discover a new and personally meaningful pathway to healing for themselves in their whole selves – mind, heart, body, and spirit.

What you can expect:
Although coaching relationships can be therapeutic, this is not therapy. Clients are guided on how to become curious, honest, compassionate, and vulnerable with themselves in a way that invites growth and healing if they are willing to put in the uncomfortable work of grieving with intention.

My coaching style is client-driven without a set program or expectations, lasting as few or as many sessions as we agree are appropriate.

Sessions last 50-55 minutes and include a brief wrap-up email afterward. My hope is that you will be able to stay present and soft during the session itself, reconnecting with any established targets afterward via the email.

Areas of specialty:
Parent loss, child loss, compound losses, fertility, death by suicide, church/faith-based loss, community loss, estrangement, disenfranchised grief, ambiguous grief, & old/untended grief.


“Mandy’s ear is attuned and her voice is so validating. That is the realest love I know of to the grieving heart; it certainly has been for mine.” – Nina Pepin

“Mandy tackles aspects of the grieving process that don’t always get talked about in a way that is full of understanding and compassion.” – Jarred Harris

“To me, Mandy’s promotion of “grief literacy” is a godsend. She provides a space to actively work on and better understand the “griefs” in life. I am so grateful that our paths have crossed.” – Larry Grant
